Description

From bestselling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova—whose novel Still Alice is now an Academy Award-winning film starring Julianne Moore—comes a novel about autism, friendship, and unconditional love. Look for Lisa Genova's latest novel, Every Note Played, available now.

In an insightful, deeply human story reminiscent of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Daniel Isn’t Talking, and The Reason I Jump, Lisa Genova offers a unique perspective in fiction—the extraordinary voice of Anthony, a nonverbal boy with autism. Anthony reveals a neurologically plausible peek inside the mind of autism, why he hates pronouns, why he loves swinging and the number three, how he experiences routine, joy, and love. In this powerfully unforgettable story, Anthony teaches two women about the power of friendship and helps them to discover the universal truths that connect us all.

    Reading this book as a 1st grade teacher I really found that autism resounds with such a powerful basis in the world. It is so unknown and finally reading a fiction novel with real facts based in the research is amazing. Great story and great author for putting autism in the realm of fiction. Thank you!!!!!
  • Good quick read

    This book was truly awesome! As a special education teacher I enjoy reading books w/characters w/disabilities. This book captured Autism at the lower end of the spectrum and was really insightful on what a non-verbal might "say". The "room" analogy was seriously vivid & captured Anthony & autism exceptionally well! A great read, very powerful!
  • An entire chapter is missing

    The book would be great if I could get past the fact that an entire chapter is missing. That's just not right.
  • Thank You Lisa

    I have long awaited this book. Lisa has a way with writing that is entertaining and educational too. I found this book particularly interesting because I was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome. I can tell you Lisa did her homework because I felt like she was talking directly to me. Lisa has made me feel like everything I have endured is worth sharing with others. Thank You Lisa!

    It's been a long time a book made me cry but this one did! My son's name is Anthony and he's getting married in a few weeks and that's the only reason I chose it. So glad I did!!

    Loved it! Once again I can't believe I finished another book by Lisa Genova! I loved Anthony and thank you for your research on autism. I can say I feel 100% different towards this topic and now see how this affects ALL of us. Thank you again Lisa and I am ready for your next book!
